Green Electricity Guide 2015


Diamond Energy once again ranked as one of Australia’s greenest electricity retailers in the Green Electricity Guide, the country’s only independent and unbiased ranking of the green electricity credentials of Australian electricity retailers.

Diamond Energy achieved the highest or equal highest score in a whopping five out of the seven criteria, including its support for renewable energy; it’s zero generation asset emissions intensity; its position in regard to coal, CSG and native forests; offers and feed in rates for solar customers; and energy efficiency. The rapid increase in GreenPower sales volumes since its launch earlier this year was noted with a high proportion of customers on 100% equivalent GreenPower.

The company has rated in the highest levels of every Greenpeace electricity retailer review conducted from 2009 to 2015.

Diamond Energy owns renewable generators and supports new renewable technologies through establishing power purchase agreements and investing into independent renewable projects. Examples include the BioPower Systems Pty Ltd wave energy demonstration project in Victoria, BELECTRIC Solar Farm in Victoria and Starfish Hill Wind Farm in South Australia.

They are also progressing development of a number of innovative grid-interactive customer incentives that are aligned to consumers’ needs, such as solar power purchase agreements and battery storage.

“Our vision here at Diamond Energy is to ‘generate change’. We support renewable generation at homes, businesses and throughout the electricity grid. We aim to deliver great service and products to our customers” said Tony Sennitt, Managing Director. “The 2015 Green Electricity Guide is even more rigorous than previous years and is a pleasing recognition of both the passion and hard work of the Diamond Energy team. We focus on driving real change by supporting more renewable energy generation and providing competitive rates, smart tips and great service to our customers”.
